...Happy Days and Holidays...

Three long months since Ive last visited my blog... Its beeen sooo long... We'll I have an excuse, aside from tons of friends and relatives coming over for short visits, Ive been quite busy planning Matthew's fifth birthday. Oh my god, he's turning 5. He's grown so fast, im worried time will come he wont be looking forward for mommy's sweet hugs and kisses... sigh! On the lighter side, can help feel excited for him growing and learning spectacular things about life, its miracles and challenges and all other things in between.

Thanks for dropping by... I'll try to restart doing some more projects during the holidays... X-finger...:-)

Fabulous Five!

Five years ago, I asked God for someone just enough for me,
instead he gave me someone so much more…
Happy 5th year anniversary Luvs…
Five fabulous years filled with fun freaky awesomeness and foolishness!
And in the midst of all these, you still had at me hello...
Staying in love with you was so much easier than I really thought!

Here's a little something for you from me...



We'll at the end of the day, he gave me an Ipad... :-)

The Perfect Catch


One random Saturday morning, we went to the nearby park and enjoyed the cozy breezy morning. Daddy and Matthew had a great time together playing Catch and Fall... Its amazing how little Matt gives his full trust that if he falls Dad is always behind to catch him... Being parents, as we now are, we readily extend our arms for our kids to catch them when they fall and even if they dont...

This is my take for GetPicky's July Sketch Challenge #10...




Materials: All Basic Grey paper, MM paints, Thickers, yarn from my stash...

CMIT Featured Designer Challenge -- Summer is Over!

Summer is Over!

Maybe for some, but for the tropical Singapore we get to enjoy year-round of warm and scorching heat.

Here in Asia, kids are also officially back to school as the second semester commenced. Rainy season started kicking in as well. Some occasional downpour here and there, drizzle and scattered rainshowers. But generally, you can still get warm blushes from sun kissing your cheeks. Its still sunny here in Singapore, all year-round...

Last school break, we spent a day in the beach and enjoyed the summer breeze. And it was so great to see the fun and the excitement on my little boy as he played by the shore making sand castles, sand angel (his version of the snow angel, very clever!). And it was so hilarious to see him laughing like crazy as the sand tickles his tiny mighty feet. He's so ticklish and he's so cute.

So I made this mini-album with all those gorgeous photos we took last summer, actually pre-mother's day picnic and beach time...

Materials used: Echo Park Summer days collection Paper, American Crafts Dimensional stickers/rub ons - SPF, AC cardstock, TA mist, TimHoltz Distressed Ink.


This is my take for CMIT Online blog's July
Challenge...

Good is Good... All the TIme...

Life has given me loads of surprises lately. And one of them is this card below, which won in the latest Singapore Metro Card Design Contest. I actually did not know about it but my dear hubby told me that a local shopping mall here in Singapore is running a card design contest for their 54th Anniversary with $1000 for the top choice award, top five $540 judges' choice selection and a people choice award.

I did try my luck in facebook, asking 700 over friends to vote, of which, they all willingly did to support me. I was on the top but on the last two days before deadline, someone took my lead and swept away my chances of winning $540 for the People's Choice Award. I never gave up and still continue to campaign for my card. I got 876 total votes but never made it. But I did not lose hope, I kept on praying, asking. And it was loudly heard and immediately answered. My design was even selected as one of the top 5 judge's selection... Whooohooo! Now I can buy christmas presents for the kids and some for myself. Below is my winning entry, its simple but it made me $540 richer, not much I know, but I can imagine how many kids will be made happy with all the presents it can buy... Besides, a chid's smile is not worth a cent, its priceless.

Life As I Know It Is Beautiful

"God certainly is watching over all of us, his children. Everyday is a manifestation of a miracle, every morning is a world made anew, refreshed. His love is oveflowing, his grace is abundant, his mercy is profound and his sacrifices are unfathomable. But I neverendingly thank him for putting me in a place where I hope I'd be, in between these two lovely people who made my life lovelier as I know It.


I've a lot of catching up to do. Lately, I have been quite inspired to finish up some projects. Work commitments have been really overwhelming. My boss had been sick on and off since the last week, then I heard that he had pneumonia. So in the end, I need to do all the stuff that he does and now its neck deep. I have this natural tendency to forcefully complete all the tasks at hand, but now, I think it has to change. I need to just chill a little bit, and complete those that I can realistically can. Sorry for the blabber, Im not complaining, or do i sound like one? Im actually thankful that I have this wonderful job, though its tough to think about the flow of current, voltages, resistances and Ohm's Law for that matter but at the end of the day, I get to leave behind all of my problems in the office and go home peacefully everyday. Maybe except for those times when I need to present the next day on some critical projects. But to sum it all, this is quite a healthly work place to be.

So on to some scrappy stuff, I manage to finish a simple frame last night. After the recent trip we had, I'd been itching to scrap some layouts. Tons and tons of wonderful pictures that I cant wait to work with. We'll I've got to find another time though, and that would be another story... Til next time...

Spring has Sprung!


It was the start of springtime when we went to visit one of the world's finest winery ---Napa Valley's Roberto Mondavi. It was a bright sunny day with blue skies, greenest grass adorned with lovely flowers combined. I can not resist the tempting view of the flowers as they all call unto me. Spring! Spring! Are you for real?



I dont have much to say. Im speechless by just looking at these blooms.

Thanks for dropping by.

Back after Hibernation

Hi... Im back after a long break. I have temporarily set aside my scisssors and my papers for the last 2 months. It was quite a long 2 months. I've been very busy since the beginning of January as we prepared for our trip to US to visit my sister in law, Icy and her family. We had to apply a visa, and since it took a ton of paper works to do, it had completely consumed 100% of whats in my mind. Then after Visa application was granted, then comes tons and tons of planning to do, on what to bring, what to buy, what to do, the itinerary and the list of must see places to visit. It has been a very memorable experience. Here are some glimpse of where we've been too. The trip had been a whirlwind. We started off in San Francisco, then drove off to Los Angeles to see Disneyland, Universal Studio, Hollywood then final stop over to Las Vegas to walk down the STRIP and be caught in the night madness as we traverse the busy street of LV with jaw-dropping scenes and magnificent edifice. And last but not the least the spectacular Hoover Dam near Arizona... It was a heck of a 2-week holiday. We we're racing after time... And I guess 2 weeks was not really enough. We missed the Grand Canyon. We definitely have to go back, someday, and see the other parts of America and hopefully wont leave any stone unturned.
